KGH Softball Team, About 1947

Nurses at Play

In between the tours of duties, Knoxville nurses find time to participate in the many recreational programs offered by the Recreation Bureau.  The Knoxville General Hospital nurses took part in the Women’s softball season, and their basketball team was one of the city’s better clubs.  Members of the KG Nurses softball team are pictured.
